' TJie opening action of th missionary
conference at th First Methodist Epis
copal church Tuet-Bay evening was greeted
with, a very larsd audience and Is the
. most remarkable assembly of Its typa
which has yet cotvened In Omaha. 'It Is
the eighth of a sanies of twelve delegated
conventions being held under the auspices
of the Methodist church. Each convention
Is a delegated bcly representing one or
more states, and the present convention
represents the st .tea of Iowa and Ne
braska. A special feature of the present
convention Is the presence of so many
bishops and the li umber of distinguished
misnlonarleB from the foreign field.
At Tuesday light's meeting Bishop
Hartsell,- who hap just returned from an
extensive tour ol
Africa, presided. The
quiet hour ' of
devotional exercise was
conducted by Hi hop Vincent of Indian

The opening adi ress was by Pr. H. L. E.

tained permlaslon rom one of the chiefs
to build my house n sight of his own on
a mini II plain at Hie foot of a hill, the
top of which was a series of tonrus of
some of the notabl of the region. The
lopl were kind a id hospitable, and not
averse to receiving the gospel. I was as
sisted in the bulletin t of my hoiuia by some
of the people, and hue by contant asso
ciation with them I wa soon enabled to
I' in n their languuf. and found that my

about forty mile distant from my house.
They could not cori eive that it wns wrong
to kill, and it naj diflleult to make them
understand that ornmandment which says
"Thou ehalt not kill," especially In view
of the fact that w4 killed animals for food.
They thought it (no wrong- to kill their
enemies and did I so mercilessly and In
variably brought the heads to their homes
and preserved item as their greatest
treasures. They Imalnlalned that whom
ever they killed,! that soul entered their
own and made (them stronger, and the
more heada they) had (ft their credit the
liiiater and etninger they became. The
i-bief of the trlhf with' which I lived had

1he utmost piirfn In them. They were
heads of men, Women and children,

to take niyplck of his collection of heads,
and I cut ne down, that of a handsome

South Asia consists of a decayed civiliza

hate about India that only the revivifying
work of Christianity can dissipate. It Is
an arrested civilisation that has made no
progress In centuries. India Is not suffering

weighing of religion. The Hindu is a
philosopher, easy, impracticable, but at the
tame time l exquisitely loveiy in nis ro

untaught. Their religious belief I that the
Individual cannot die, but Is a component
part of the eternal whole. India is ripe

India must belong to Christ, and it will

Speaking of the Philippines Bishop Old
ham said:
It la the mission of the United States
to lift the Filipino into that condition that
they may become a great Christian republic
of their own. The United States govern
ment is building up a school system there
that Is unparalleled in Asiatic history. In
stitutions cannot make a people; people
must make Institutions, and it is your
duty to lift these people to the level of
your institution. You are responsible to

Ing into an old religion, it has been said
by those who look with aversion to our oc
cupation of the Philippines that bur mis
slon is evidently to shut the Filipinos from
one Christian church to another. We have
too much on hand there to worry much
about the antls. The great work we have
to do la to win this people to Christ, and
this wa can do with the aid of the native
Christians, and, Ood helping us, thla whole

PITTSBURG, April 8 With the excep
tion of ode or two points outside of the
Pittsburg district the strained situation
between operators andjr miners In the soft
coal fields of western Pennsylvania Is
hourly growing more pacific. Following the
signing of the acale yesterday demanded
by the miners the mines of the operators
who signed the scale resumed their opera
tions today, although In many Instances
With reduced forces.
In the Pittsburg district there were 18.000
miners working and 1,200 were Idle. Nearly
II of the mines of the Pittsburg Coal
company were In operation and It was ex
pected that those men who are out will
return within a day or so. It was ex
plained that, following holidays, It was
generally several days before all the men
returned to their labor. The cause of the
Idleness of the men today, however, was
Bald to be due to their failure to receive
word of the signing of the scale.
Independent Will Sot Sign.
The independent operators who met last
night and decided not to sign the scale
held another meeting tonight. The Inde
pendent operators employed between 12,000
and 14,000 men and their mines were all Idle
today and will be so until either the acale
Is signed or an agreement is reached be
tween the operators and employe.
The Independent operators were In ses
sion until almost midnight. Representatives
ef twenty operators were present, rep
resenting an annual output of 20,000,000
tons. A permanent organisation was formed
and after the meeting the following of
ficial statement was given out:
At a meeting of the Indenendent oner.
ators held tonight the position taken at the
previous meeting was reaffirmed and no
action W'S taken toward the nceentAnee
of the 1 ecale. The probable outcome of
these meetings will be the formation of
n Independent coal operators' association
or western Pennsylvania district. Those
present were absolutely unanimous against
signing the 1903 scale.
It Is announced that the independents
would 'not work their mines nonunion,
which means an entire suspension of their
It was learned tonight that the entire
nonunion field of the Allegheny valley
would continue work without Interruption.
This is In what Is known as the Freeport
Oolan Starts Tronhle.
Interest In the labor situation in the Pitts
burg district today was diverted to the dis
trict convention in this city and the attempt
of Patrick Dolai) to regain control of the
convention. The convention met to hear
the report of the tellers, the reading of
which consumed the entire day.' The result
was not announced with certainty because
of a dispute as to some of the voting en
velopes. It' was seml-officially stated, how
ever, that Frank Feehan was elected -president;
J. 8. Clark, Moon Run, vice president:
John Hurley, Arnold City, secretary-treas
urer. National executive board members
are stated to be William Uttle, A. J. Krat-
ershl, James Sheehan, William Booth, A.
L. Davis, George Black, S. A. Whtzle, Paul
Flynn, E. P. Hanaway and James Watc-
During the session of the convention
Dolun appeared In the liall ana' attempted
to preside over the convention, announcing
that he waa the only legal chairman of the
meeting. The convention was In a turmoil
when Dolan's counsel appeared and an at
tempt was made to eject hltn from the hall,
He notified the convention that they had
no legal right to remove Dolan and then
left the hall. A few minutes afterward riot
and disorder broke out again and the dele
gates clamored that Dolan be forcibly
thrown from the hall. A committee of .ten
was appointed to carry out a resolution to
this end and as the committee approached
Dolan he quietly left the hall. It Is ex
pected that Dolan will appeal to the court
tomorrow to adjudge the delegates In con
tempt of court.
Strike Conditions at Irwin.
From other districts it is announced that
few mines are operating with full forces,
the same conditions prevailing as In the
Pittsburg district. At Irwin, however, tho
nearest to an actual strike prevails. There
the men are being urged to stand fast and
told that the operators will eventually
concede the demands. At a delegate con
ventlon today a scale committee fixed a
scale which calls " for an advance of I
cents more than the scale of 1903 for pick
mining, and the operators were Invited
to a conference on April 12. The works
have been picketed in the meantime ar.d
the strikers are In an ugly mood over the
appearance of armed deputies.
At Clearfield, where the annual conven
tion of the district Is being held, the oper
ators announced today that they cannot
meet the acale committee until tomorrow.
It was reported tonight that the scale
would be signed and It Is expected that
work will be resumed in this district within
the week.
In the Johnstown district work is prac
tically at a standstill. No trouble haa
occurred at the Berwlnd-Whlte. works, al
though a number of armed guarda are on
duty. No attempt was made to interfere
with the strikers. It Is reported tonight
that the company la bringing In non
union men and evicting union miners from
company houses.
A big mass meeting was held at South
Fork today and It was resolved to re-
frain from returning to work until after
the Clearfield convention takes action.

There Is to be a meeting of the operators
at Bouth McAleeter tomorrow, and, al
though there will be no conference with
the miner until after the meeting, there
Is every reason to believe that the op

District OOleera Authorised ta Sign
10O3 Scale.
COIA'MBCB, O., April I. The executive
board of the Ohio Mino Workers today de
cided to permit the miners to sign contracts
with any operators who are willing to pay
the 1903 scale. The various subdlatrlct or
ganisations will prepare agreement based
on the 1903 scale, adjusted to meet changes
In conditions since the scale was drafted,
which will be presented to those operators
who are willing to sign contracts. Merlin-
of the miners of the subdtstrlcts will be
held for this purpose and there will be
about eighteen In all of these meetings.
The first will be held at Athens next Fri
day and will comprise the miner of the
Hocking valley. The wages paid in the
Hocking valley have for years been the
basis for all state agreements, and or this
reason the scale for these mines will be
adjusted first. The operators of the Hock
ing valley will meet at Athens next Monday
and a joint conference will be held. The
position which the operators take in that
conference will have much to do with de
termining the action of the operators In the
other districts of Ohio.
As there are great quantities of coal
stored and there is no pressing necessity for
tho operation of many of the mines, It may
be thirty days before contracts are ready In
all of the subdlstricts. There is a complete
suspension of work In the mines of the

of the bituminous operators' advisory

The operators, who are opposed to pay

appointed a joint advisory board consisting
of two members from eacn state. No new

Dispatr Over Pay of Emergency Mea
Nearly t'aasea -m Rnptnre.
DE8 MOINES, April 3. A rupture In
the Joint conference of the United Mine
Workers and operators of Iowa . division
was narrowly averted here today In . a
clash over the pay ef the emergency men
on service In the mines during the shut
down pending an agreement or disagree
ment on the wage scale. The miners in
sisted that tho emergency; men were only
wanted temporarily and that they should
be taken out . tonlgUtu U. the , operators
would not consent o-pay them the 1903
scale. The operators' refused. In the heat
of discussion President 'White of the Mine
Workers, who Just reached the city from
Indianapolis, came to the rescue by an
nouncing that the emergency men should
remain in the mine during the negotia
tions with the understanding that they
should receive the scale to be fixed by the
Joint scale committee which meets tomor
row. This was finally agreed to by the
operatora and minera. The final decision
regarding the scale will be reported prior
to April IS according to statements made
by the leaders today.

Reports from Bcranton are to the effect
that the Delaware A Hudson and the
Erie companies are making preparations
to resume at soon as possible. A number
of men have been engaged at the mlnea
of these companies ostensibly for guard

features by way of entertainment, one of
the most realistic being a wild west ba'.

A petition wa presented to the hoard
of director of the Uve 8tock exchange

fluence of the exchange be used with the
Stock Tarda company to require that all
peddlers, solicitors and professional graft
er be required to secure a permit from the
company before they should be allowed to
canvass the buildings or the grounds. It
Is hoped that this will abate the rapidly
growing nuisance of this sort. Of late
there has been scarcely a day when there
are not from six to twenty annoying and
persistent solicitors golbg from office to
office in the Exchange building. Most
of them have a Hue of the most worthless
articles to dispose of. Many, are beggara
